    installed maf translator and gm maf now 2 cel codes

    So I installed my maf translator and gm sensor. I dont have it installed on the pipe yet but I started it to warm up the oil a bit so I could change my oil. But when I started it it stumbled then got code 13 and code 25, air intake temp sensor and barrometric sensor. I checked to make sure the translator was installed and ran properly. Is it doing that just cuz its not installed on the piping yet? I am assuming so but just want to make sure.

    sounds like it might be a wiring issue.

    you have it running with the maf not attached to any piping? I don't see how it could idle.

    I figured it out. The connection from the maf plug to the maft wasn't pushed in all the way. But it idles like crap probably cuz its not installed on the piping yet.

    Yeah, but I heard that some people, if the pipe blows off the car stays running. Oh well live and learn, I'm just getting past the whole stock maf stuff. So its a learning experience.

    Yes, that is because it will still count air while still attached to the UICP for the TB. One of the advantages for having it in blow-through configuration is that a boost leak(s) between the turbos and MAF will not cause the car to drive around as poorly. Obviously, the degree of the leak is something to consider, so a larger one from a coupler or pipe blowing off makes this very appreciable. This actually happened to me once while tuning, and I was able to safely drive back home to the garage.

    yeah I love losing an ic pipe! Great fun to have to rev the shit out of it to limp home a couple blocks.

    The car won't run right if the maf isn't hooked to ANYTHING though
